4 Advent gifts for my boy

Four gifts for my boy

I’ve bought these four Advent gifts for my son this year. He’s become quite fascinated by the whole Star Wars universe, and he has an amazing ability to play for hours with one or two things. That is why I had to buy the two Lego Star Wars figures. I decided on Darth Wader and Luke Skywalker, because he can build them again and again. I’ll wrap them up and give them to him on the second and third Sunday of Advent. On the first Sunday of Advent we won’t be home, so we need to bring the present with us. Therefore, I picked out a cute cubebot/Ninjabot from Areaware, which I know he’ll love. Lastly, I went all practical as well. I bought a set of night wear from Molo as well.

What did you buy for your kids this year?

A home with the perfect bedroom

SFD9BD79589BB714F4FACF99055414BA3B7 I’m really fascinated by this Swedish home, which I found on Stadshem. Just take a look at the bedroom. What an amazing room!

I love the black ‘wall’ separating the two beds from each other. It’s the perfect way to create two rooms in one. I’ll be looking into a similar solution for our home that’s for sure. And what a perfect workspace as well. I would love to work from home and looking out on the trees.

The bunk bed is wonderful. I’ll show it to my daughter when she gets home, because on top of her wishlist is a bunk bed. This one is perfect for inspiration. The rest of the home is also quite breathtaking. I hope you’ll enjoy the tour and hopefully get inspired just like I did.

Have a wonderful day <3

The Advent calendar – Part Two

A few days ago I showed you some pretty cool DIY Advent Calendars in this post. Today, I want to show you a few more. While picking out which ones to show you here on Espresso Moments, I regretted not sticking to my original plan and buy a little something for each day before Christmas Eve. But done is done, and I’ll never talk my husband into doing it anyway. But next year, I’ll have a lot of inspiration to pick from.

I hope you’ve picked one to make for your kids – if so please share it with me – either in a comment or on Instagram (I’m @espressomoments there). I would love to see what you’ve done this year.

Have a lovely day <3

The Advent calendar – Part One

I’m the kind of person, who likes to be on top of things. Therefore, I like to get an early start when it comes to planning the advent calendar for the kids each year.

This year we decided that they wouldn’t get a gift every day of December. Instead we wanted to give them a bigger gift each Sunday. I’ll do another post where I show you what I’ve bought for each of my kids.

In this post, I want to show you some of my favourite and most creative advent calendars that I’ve seen online. Hopefully, you’ll get inspired to make one of these?

Beautiful storage for the kids from Rafa Kids

I almost forgot about this new storage system, which I saw a while back. I really liked the system from Rafa Kids at first sight. And now that I’ve seen even more pictures of the system, I’m convinced that I really need one or maybe to in my home.

We’ve been using the String system for years now. My daughter in particular likes the system. But my husband is ready for a change. He used to joke about me wanting to add a String shelf in every room. I actually managed to do just that – but now I can actually see it from his point of view.

It might be time for a change, or at least to introduce new storage systems in our home. At least my son doesn’t have a large String system – only a few String Pocket shelves. Wow – this post was actually supposed to be about a new and cool storage system from Rafa Kids.

When I saw the different shelves from Rafa Kids for the first time, I really liked the different shape, and the fact that you can get it in so many different sizes. The pictures below are of their shelves collection. I’ve picked out pictures of their S shelf, their M shelf, their L shelf and their XL shelf. Which one is your favourite? Oh, and sorry for the many pictures, I just had a really hard time picking just a few. It’s just such a beautiful collection.
